The Department of Informatics and Computer Science offers degrees in business informatics, health care informatics, and computer science. A data analytics major and an MS in Informatics are on the horizon. For a discussion of what the term 'informatics' means, as well as a discussion of changes in our majors, visit the Informatics Overview page.
Informatics is integral to our degrees because our curriculum is made up of courses designed to provide students with the strong technical background needed to develop solutions to today's information challenges. There is a huge variety of opportunities for trained and skilled professionals in every sector of society who can turn information into actionable knowledge.
Informatics is a rewarding and challenging field that allows for lifelong learning. Job opportunities abound, and salaries are relatively high. The demand for informatics graduates is increasing faster than the general demand for most other fields of study. Job seekers with an informatics degree and strong communication and administrative skills are in increasing demand.
